As part of our efforts to give your baby the best start in life, and protect, promote and support breastfeeding and mother-baby bonding, WWRC has adopted the principles outlined in the World Health Organization’s Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI).
As such, WWRC offers a lactation clinic daily to support new mothers who are having difficulty breastfeeding, or who need reassurance about breastfeeding. We offer information on a variety of topics including the importance of skin to skin contact, feeding cues and weaning, hand and manual milk expression and feeding positions that are comfortable for you and your baby.
Our clinicians can also advise mothers who are experiencing problems breastfeeding, such as slow weight gain, weak or inadequate suck, or genetic or physical problems that can affect breastfeeding.
Our lactation clinic is managed by experienced clinicians specialized in focusing on your needs and concerns, to help resolve any barriers to breastfeeding difficulties.
If have questions, concerns or have had serious breastfeeding problems in the past, you can visit our clinic in order to prevent future breastfeeding problems.
The clinic is open from 7am to 3pm daily (Sunday to Thursday) in the Outpatient Department.
